The White Ajah

THIS DOCUMENT CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT FINISHED THE SERIES
One of the seven legitimate Aes Sedai Ajahs. Sisters of this Ajah abstained from matters of the world and worldly knowledge, and instead devoted themselves to questions of philosophy and truth. Aside from the First Weaver, the head of the Ajah, there was no internal structure whatsoever. Her authority was very high, not much less than that of the Red Ajah head and roughly equal to the authority of the Green or Yellow Ajah heads. In Choosing Sitters, the support of ten Sisters was required to become a candidate. It was considered unseemingly to campaign in any way, either to become a candidate or to win selection as a Sitter. Voting was not by secret ballot, but by open show of hands.
It was believed by many sisters in other Ajahs that the White Ajah was the only one without an Ajah set of eyes-and-ears and that they had no real interest in the world. This was not true, though their Ajah network was indeed small. Even the Whites-as a group, anyway-wanted to try to manipulate world events, along strictly logical lines, of course.
Among Whites, being sent off from the Tower on a mission of some sort, even as part of an embassy, was looked upon as drudgery at best, and at worst, punishment. Most Whites never bonded a Warder.
Just prior to the Last Battle, there were approximately eighty members in the White Ajah, making it the smallest.
